I have a server that has 1 ssd drive for the OS that is not on the raid controller and 3 2TB SATA drives on a raid controller with raid 5. I am looking for the cheapest solution for protecting the OS drive in case of failure. Can i clone the ssd drive to another ssd drive say 1 a week and if the os drive fails i can just plug in the cloned drive? I would think this would work because this is the only DC and i shouldn't have to worry about Tombstone records. I was thinking of acronis to do the cloning.
Customer doesnt want to spend the money on setting up a second DC.
what are your thoughts.
